St. Elisabeth mother of the holy Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist of the Lord, John. I like this long format of for the original icons- I believe they would make a perfect adiitinion to an icon corner and a perfect very personal gift

The icon was painted with the eggtempera trechnique on a 9mm thin, specially prepared plywood panel that measures  30 cm in height . The name of the Saint -- Aghia Elisavet -- is written on her left and right in greek, with brown eggtempera with byzantine characters.
Shellac and resin varnish are added on top to seal the colours and produce a miniature icon that will last

Additionally the icon comes tenderly protected in its individual bag, together with its instructions how to care for it, a little sachet of herbs from our garden in Crete -and our custom icon favors - Ready to be used as a gift
